Regional Transportation Planning Organization

OVRDC works with the state of Ohio and ODOT to expand transportation planning beyond Metropolitan Planning Area (MPOs) boundaries. The RTPO service area includes the counties of Adams, Brown, Fayette, Gallia, Highland, Jackson, Lawrence (rural area), Pike, Ross, Scioto and Vinton. We work on a wide range of projects, including data collection and analysis, project planning, grant writing, and project funding research. Our current projects include a sidewalk inventory and the 2018-2021 RTIP development. To read our 2040 Long Range Transportation Plan see the links below.

RTPO Projects

OVRDC Long Range Transportation Plan

The RTPO was created by ODOT in effort of planning robust regional transportation system. The resulting RTPO’s Comprehensive Transportation Plan provides an opportunity to coordinate economic and community development with transportation planning efforts and to enhance regional cooperation and communication. OVRDC, as an ODOT-appointed RTPO, will utilize their new status as an opportunity to address long-range regional transportation needs. A Comprehensive Transportation Plan will assist OVRDC and ODOT to prioritize regional transportation projects with the greatest economic and social benefits, ensuring effective communication of regional priority between RTPO agencies and ODOT.
